Man Utd offer ‘crazy salary’ to Real Madrid star, he would their best signing in years

Man Utd offer ‘crazy salary’ to Real Madrid star, he would their best signing in years

According to a report, Manchester United has offered a “crazy salary” to recruit Real Madrid sensation Karim Benzema.

Benzema was awarded the Ballon d’Or in October after scoring 44 goals in 46 appearances for Real Madrid. During that time, Los Blancos won the Champions League, another La Liga championship, the Spanish Super Cup, and the European Super Cup.

He also became the first Frenchman to win the Balon d’Or since Zinedine Zidane in 1998. The 34-year-old became the oldest recipient of the trophy since Stanley Matthews won the inaugural edition in 1956.

Since then, though, the France international has played less than thirty minutes for Real Madrid due to injury, and he also missed the World Cup in Qatar.

With Benzema’s contract expiring in the summer, rumors have circulated that the striker could move on to greener pastures.

United and PSG are rumored to have submitted proposals for Benzema.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s acrimonious exit has left Ten Hag’s squad in serious need of striking reinforcements, with only Marcus Rashford and an injury-prone Anthony Martial to pick from.

And Spanish tabloid Nacional has now connected Benzema with a free transfer to United after it was reported that Los Blancos only offered Benzema a one-year contract extension.

The story alleges that negotiations between Benzema’s representation and Real president Florentino Perez are “paralyzed” and that the La Liga powerhouses are “in grave danger” of losing their star player.

United offered Benzema a “crazy wage,” according to Nacional, having saved between £15 million and £30 million with Ronaldo’s departure (as per The Athletic).

The terms are rumored to be “far greater” than what Benzema received at Real Madrid, and United have told the France international that he will be a “undisputed starter.”

Benzema’s former Real Madrid teammates Casemiro and Raphael Varane are currently playing for Manchester United, which could help sweeten any potential trade.
